Story

For four decades, the Interstitial Cystitis Association (ICA) has stood as a beacon of hope and unwavering support for those living with IC/BPS. As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, we reflect on the remarkable journey that has brought us to this moment—a journey marked by resilience, tireless advocacy, and an unwavering commitment to those affected by IC/BPS.

Our Collective Goal: $40,000

During our 40th anniversary campaign, we have set an ambitious goal to raise $40,000. This vital funding will empower us to:

- Expand Advocacy Efforts: Through grassroots networks, we will amplify our voice and advocate for improved care and understanding of IC/BPS.

- Educate and Empower: By enhancing support services, we aim to educate and empower the IC/BPS community, equipping them with knowledge and tools to navigate their journey.

- Build Communities of Support: We recognize the power of community. Our goal is to create safe spaces where those affected by IC/BPS can find solace, share experiences, and find strength in unity.

Your involvement matters! Here’s how you can contribute:

- Donate: Whether your contribution is big or small, every dollar fuels our mission. Your generosity directly impacts lives.

- Spread the Word: Share our campaign with friends, family, and colleagues. Help them to understand why IC/BPS matters and how they can be part of the solution.

- Fundraise Creatively: Host a DIY fundraiser such as a bake sale, charity run, crafting event, movie viewing, or cooking experience. Your creativity can make a significant difference!

Together, We Achieve More

As we commemorate 40 years, we pay tribute to the resilience of IC/BPS warriors, caregivers, and advocates. Your donations are more than financial support; they are acts of compassion, solidarity, and hope. They ensure that the ICA remains a steadfast force, continuing our critical work.
